Sushi Rock Grill's chefs roll up fresh seafood, veggies, and seasonings into creative sushi rolls and blend fresh ingredients to craft Japanese and Thai entrees. At dinner, a seaweed salad draped in sesame oil ($7) rousts appetites before diners plunge their chopsticks into a classic pad thai ($14+) or shrimp tempura, which bathes battered vegetables in a ponzu sauce ($16). Culinary explorers can point their palates' compass toward other Asian nations and chow down on the vietnamese filet mignon ($19) or the korean bulgogi, a marinated beef filet sautéed in spicy sauce ($19). The express lunch emanates from the kitchen between 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. on Fridays; dishes include sushi, bento boxes, and tempuras ($12–$20). If diners so desire, a host will escort them to outdoor tables, where guests can breathe fresh air and sneak morsels into the mouths of passing clouds.
Art of Sushi
There are two menus at Art of Sushi: one for Japanese entrees, and one for sushi. That doesn't mean that the kitchen and the sushi chefs can't collaborate, however. During dinner, they join forces to create bento boxes lined with crispy tempura, gyoza, and California rolls. The King Lobster maki roll, by the same token, pairs lobster tempura rolls with half of a fried lobster tail.
If you'd rather stick to one style, then peruse ginger stir-fries, noodle soups, and meats flavored with homemade teriyaki sauce. Alternatively, the sushi side features both raw and cooked seafood, balanced atop pads of rice without a single safety harness. Pair meals with glasses or bottles from the wine list, which also features sake options, plum wine, and imported Japanese beers.
